AquaSox slug 3 home runs, top Emeralds

Everett bounces back from a pair of losses to beat Eugene 6-4.

EUGENE — Spencer Packard, James Parker and Alberto Rodriguez each homered as the Everett AquaSox bounced back from dropping the first two games of the series to beat the Eugene Emeralds 6-4 on Thursday night.

Parker drew a bases-loaded walk in the top of the first inning as the AquaSox jumped on top 1-0 early.

Packard homered in the second and Parker’s homer came in the third sandwiched around a Eugene run to make it 3-1.

Rodriguez added to the tally with a solo home run in the fifth.

The Emeralds got a run back in the seventh before Packard added a run-scoring single in the ninth and Justin Lavey stole home on a throw to second to give Everett (57-65) a 6-2 advantage.

Luis Matos hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning for Eugene, but Matt Willrodt struck out Marco Luciano to end the game.

Packard and Parker finished with two hits and two RBI each and Logan Rinehart struck out five and allowed one run on three hits in five innings for the AquaSox.

Matos had three hits and two RBI, and Andy Thomas and Simon Whiteman each drove in a run for Eugene (73-47).
